Independent Members of the Policing & Community Safety Partnerships

10 November 2014

Do you have an interest in local Policing or do you want to play a part in making your community safer?

The Policing Board is looking to appoint independent members to the 11 Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSPs) which are being reconstituted in April 2015 as the result of the changes to local Government.

PCSPs are statutory bodies established under the Justice Act (Northern Ireland) 2011. There are 11 PCSPs - one for each of the council areas in Northern Ireland. Belfast has one overarching PCSP and four District Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (DPCSPs), for the North, South, East and West of the City.

Who can apply?
We are looking for people who can represent their community and convey local opinion on the policing issues and concerns most affecting their area. To be considered you must:

  • be able to demonstrate effective engagement and an active interest in your community; or policing; or community safety;
  • live in, or be able to show you have a close connection with the Council area for which you are making an application;
  • be able to work as part of a team to meet the PCSP objectives; and
  • be able to communicate effectively orally and in writing.

These positions are not remunerated. The payment of reasonable expenses incurred in connection with PCSP member duties is currently under review.

Information evenings
The Board is holding information evenings to give people the chance to learn more about this role.

All events will be held from 7.00pm until 9.00pm.
